I would not waste my money on the knobs.
I think they said it was free to do that at the time for me. Bigger knob on the 24mm pc-e may restrict movement (rotation) depending on the body.
Be interesting to see if they came up with the same general amount for you as they quoted me. Or perhaps they are now reaming everyone for everything...
You can easily do the 24mm yourself. However, I have read on Nikonians or somewhere that a person did their 45mm on their own and the cable started rubbing and then the lens quit working properly.
Well, the way I look at it, you put $2K in a lens, the pucker factor alone would cause me to have serious reservations about a DIY job. Then, times that x 3 - and I'd be checking into the nearest nut house.
Nikon has responded with a question about what cameras the modded PC-E's would be used on, which I have answered. So, I think they will be giving me a price shortly.
Appreciate the heads-up on the knobs!
